What to Wear to a Virtual Movie Night With Friends

A virtual movie night is a great way to get together with friends both near and far. Does your bestie live in a different state? Or, do you have that big group of friends nearby, but it’s been hard to find a night you can all commit to going out? No matter why you’re planning a virtual movie night with your pals, it’s the perfect time to connect with people without having to travel or make a big to-do about getting together. A virtual gathering also allows you to do something social from the comfort of your own home, so it’s really a win-win.

Once the movie’s picked out and you’ve pinned down a date and time for everyone to hop on video, all that’s left to do is decide on what to wear (well, and to stock up on snacks, of course!). When picking an outfit for a virtual movie night with friends, you’ll want to opt for something that matches the vibe of the get-together. So, ideally, your outfit will feel cute enough for socializing while being comfy enough for an at-home movie session. Read on for four easy outfit ideas that’ll allow you to strike the perfect balance.

Joggers and a Cotton Crewneck

Women's joggers feature everything we love about athleisure wear. With a flattering fit, a soft and stretchy material, and an on-trend style, some ankle joggers will take you places, even if where you’re going is over to the couch to fire up your laptop.

If you’re thinking right now, “do I even need to wear pants for this?,” the answer is yes. While it’s true that other attendees might only see you from the waist up, you never know when you’ll have to stand up to refill your popcorn bowl or answer the door for the pizza delivery person, so wearing pants is definitely advised. For a perfect virtual movie night look, rock your joggers with a cute pullover cotton crewneck sweater, like a fine gauge cotton crewneck sweater in a flattering navy shade.

A Classic Pajama Set

Channel the pajama parties of your childhood and suggest a PJ theme for your movie night. Opting for a theme for the virtual get-together is a great way to get everyone in the spirit and will also make for some seriously great photo ops during the night. Plus, everyone loves the feeling of getting cozy in pajamas to watch a movie.

This is also the moment to give your cutest women's pajamas a moment in the spotlight. Throw on a timeless knit or flannel pajama set with long pants and a love sleeve top if it’s a bit chilly in your house, or if you want to keep it a bit breezier, opt for a cute cotton chambray PJ set with cropped pajama bottoms and a matching short-sleeve chambray pajama top.

Stretchy Yoga Pants and a Tunic Top

Yoga pants and a tunic top are a classic combo for a reason. As comfortable and effortless as it is flattering and cute, a pair of leggings with a tunic top is a match made in heaven, and a perfect look for your virtual movie night.

Opt for a pair of high-waisted yoga pants, which are a must-have for everything from perfecting your cat and cow poses to running errands (just in case you forget to stock up on those snacks we mentioned earlier!) and pair these versatile bottoms with a fleece cowl neck tunic sweater or a breezy, soft jersey quarter-length sleeve tunic top depending on the season.

A Lounge Dress

It’s a nightgown! No, it’s a cute and stylish dress! No, wait, it’s the best of both worlds: a lounge dress. As the name implies, a lounge dress is a dress that’s comfy enough for lounging in, which makes it the perfect going-out-stay-in look you want for your virtual movie hang.

For a cold-weather movie night, get seriously cozy in a long-sleeve fleece quarter-zip lounge dress in a fun print like trendy leopard spots or retro color block. And for a warmer weather virtual get-together, throw on a lightweight and silky-smooth Supima® cotton short sleeve knee-length nightgown dress that you can wear over some comfy bike shorts. Pair either of these lounge dresses with some slipper socks and voila! You’re ready to enjoy the evening in laid-back style.

From horror to rom-com and from pizza to popcorn, any of the outfits above will be perfect for your virtual movie night with friends. Get ready to cozy up, connect with your pals near and far, and make some lasting memories without ever having to leave your space.
